My Title Suffers incompleteness

Padmaja Vikas Chavan
12 – B

My title suffers incompleteness
An Overbearing pride is evidenced:
An evidence of notability:
An evidence of inferiority –
On a brumous October morning
The trees appeared  like hazy shapes
And that the landscape – a blurred outline
-Of the happenings
A force now desolates everything in my path
The eyes made an unspoken conversation
But forgot to involve a self-confession
And that it beats inside this labile mortal thing
And that there seems,
No scope in emulating
Against unequalled theorization.
And they make an overstatement
And fail to imitate their politeness
And now they stand,
Against a histrionic despair
Unaware of his herald of approach
Always foreshadowing my intentions:
Declamation with an expression of strong vehemence
And deception by creation
Of visually appealing ideas
And that the hatred –
To the naive observers
Appears a conjuration
And that I become weak by mind
And a retard by heart
He received by retention
And forgot with a less assimilation
Propelled by self egocentrism
And I in pursuit of morality
And lost in a sense of self-altruism
The error of ours that glares in the dark
And I see a flagrant violation of my intentions
And that this amplification
Elaborated and intricated the false beliefs of mine
Marked by a complex understanding of small  things
And a need of re-refinement of old beliefs and hopes
Each time we concealed out guilt

Too much light not so bright..

Kritika Jha
8 – D

There was an energy revolution after which the usage of LED bulbs increased enormously. Almost every house today has an LED.Light has given many people to improve their life , maybe because it enables one to read ,write and understand .But , does it mean that always it has been on the correct side ??? One of the reason why night has been so famous is because of darkness.This has attracted many people including readers , poets ,authors and many more .Night also works as an example for all of us .As a famous thought says… “After every dark night, comes a day very bright..” But this thought make sense in today’s world.This is because the difference between night and day is vanishing .Death’s night is getting brighter, and the artificially lit outdoor surfaces grew at a pace of 2.2 per cent every year from 2012 to 2016. The charm of night is disappearing. Nowadays, with so many LEDs, bulbs , tubelights kept switched on for almost the whole day, it is very obvious to say that this light is destroying the night. Using mobiles or watching terevision while we are going to sleep is not even beneficial for us as it destroys our sleep. At last ,I just want to say that we all should switch off all the lights and mobile phones by night. This will help to save our nights.If all of us do this maybe then our night will remain with us. If all of will try then we can create a difference… So please think on it.. It is not just bad for me ,but it is bad for all of us…

Yash Kamath

Life, La vie, Leben, among many others are just a few words which mean life, but sometimes it may come in the mind of the reader to ask them self over and over again, What is life? How did it come to be? Are we the only ones out here? and obviously a plethora of other questions. Life is looked upon from many perspectives: a scientific one, wherein it originated from atoms and molecules of organic nature; or a religious one, where God created it. But irrespective of the point of view, some people tend to believe that science and religion do not work together on the life theory. Science merely calls life as a chance event of the orientation of atoms and molecules while the religious point of view would point to it as a blessing of God. But no matter what, it is important to remember that life may be a lucky arrangement of atoms or even a blessing of God- to be with life is truly a miracle in itself. Life is not complex for us to understand, it is far too simple for us to even think of it in that way. We can’t comprehend life if we seek it in complex equations and similar laws. Life is not governed by any laws other than the laws of nature-and they are the simplest ones you can find. So no matter what one may feel about life, it is always important to know that you are not alone in your queries about it-you are one among 7 and a half billion sentient beings all thinking of who made them and what is their true purpose in life. When in doubt about what is your role as a person, and what you could contribute to society, always think- Life is too full of beautiful miracles to not rest and wonder at, but to explore; there are always billions with you!

NOTHING THAT COULDN’T BE DONE…

Yash Kamath
12 – A

Don’t we all have a moment in our lives that we wish to go back and correct? We see our lives branching into alternate futures had it been the other way round and you wouldn’t have abused your friends the way you did. Or maybe some regret over cheating in the exams or perhaps some errors in life that you would simply like to flip around for your convenience? Regret consumes us from within, and it does not limit itself to our bodies; it takes over everything that we do- sadness and grief run rampant in our lives, wrecking havoc on the events of present day, dragging us into a dark and dismal abyss- one from which return is generally not expected. Why is it that we regret the decisions made wrongly by us. A thought, instead, we should keep, a determination, in fact, that we will never give in to regret and shall always look forward to the new things and opportunities that venture into our lives. Quite intelligently, it can be debated that the person who regrets over his or her past mistakes would very easily miss the next opportunity that comes knocking at the door. On the other hand, the person who doesn’t let regret overwhelm his emotions, would generally be able to grasp opportunities in life, when they spring up. So the question therefore doesn’t need to be “What else could I have done?” but instead: “There’s nothing that couldn’t be done. There is nothing that can’t be done”…

A HUMAN

Yash Kamath
12 – A

Many of you would be thinking what an abstract topic has been put up on the blog today. One that might not make much sense at all, and when considering all arguments, doesn’t give much reason to be here. Of course, all arguments from your side are completely valid and as an individual, I would agree to most of them. But the purpose today was not to legislate on how abstract the title could be- instead, it was to delve into the depths of the words typed up there. “A HUMAN” – what exactly does it mean? what does it mean… to be human? It doesn’t make sense to fit being human into a science: Homo sapiens is the binomial nomenclature for the only extant human species. Homo is the human genus, which also includes Neanderthals and many other extinct species of hominid; H. sapiens is the only surviving species of the genus Homo. Obviously, this is what wiki would tell you, or even most books and sites. But is it just the technical aspects that make us who we are? Are we no more than just a 35-40 page article detail? Do we bear the potential to make ourselves better than who we are- to become one with ourselves and one with God? Homo sapiens, oh sorry: Homo sapiens, does not define in any way, what we are and what we may become. Of this fact we can be sure that just two words of a name cannot encompass all that we have accomplished in the millenia gone by- it does not speak of our achievements, our failures, our greed, our vanity, our anger and to come to point, our vast diversity! Two words absolutely fail to cover these topics; instead, we are reduced merely to creatures with a biological name, two words long. That feels so…. discouraging! Science, (no offense intended, buddy!) has simplified our life into two words- easy to remember, yes, but easy to recognise, obviously not. This name discards us an individuals and makes it as a common feature of all us humans. We do not become people but objects sent to live and then to die. Is it true that we must follow this procedure? Life and death- natural cycle. (Science: “Yep, all others do it; let Homo sapiens try this new feature. Yo, put in the “LIFE AND DEATH” program in humans.”) Must we… be enslaved in this system of life and death, rich and poor, intelligence and dumbness? Are we mere combinations of atoms or a unique combination of atoms- one in a billion trillion trillion? Doesn’t that make us unique- independent from the name that we share? As humans, apart from the scientific procedure, we must try to contemplate what we are, who we are and what we must do. And not only bookish knowledge is to be our salvation, but the belief in humanity and community surely shall…

Oh Crackers!

Shashank Pai
X – C

Oh Crackers! Oh Crackers It’s a request From an earthly one
Don’t sell yourself to my such one
Oh Crackers They don’t understand You give light but Explode with smoke where they stand
But I believe You have much greater sense than them
If they had that then I would rather discuss with them
Oh crackers They use you on festival But do they realise For what is a festival ?
Oh crackers I know that you know about it, So I request you to contribute a bit Not to sell yourself to them
Crackers O’ Crackers, It’s a request from one to another earthly one
We need to save our earthlyness For someone who is yet to attain earthlyness

Relinquish

Yukta panjwani
9-C

I ran from my fate
Into a deep valley of thoughts
Which was blossomed with fear
And bore a fruit of loneliness

Away from the crowd
There I stood alone
I ate the fruit and
It cherished me with its tone

The fruit transformed
Into an unknown friend
He grabbed me by my hand
Dragged me into the village of silence

Lost in the world of his words
I was molded in the shape he gave
And melted in his colour

It was the euphoria
Of the bonds we shared
That I felt happy in the village
From which I qualmed the most

Now that I realise
The mistake I made
To pave the fate and
Bring back the same phase again

CHILDHOOD

Anusha Vasaikar
XII – B

When I was just a kid, bloodshed, war was a mere myth. Now that I have grown up, I fear my own kin and kith. When I was just a kid, there was peace and democracy. As soon as I grew up, it ushered in riots and hypocrisy. When I was just a kid, Earth was a picture of love and life. No longer did I grow up, someone cracked it with an evil knife. When I was just a kid, there was merry chaos and pleasing nuisance. Now when I have grown up, There is only silence… grave, grave silence!

ARE WE LIVING

Rutuja Patil
XII B

Every Monday morning when we wake up, we so desperately want to hit the snooze button, and we are so eagerly waiting for the next weekend so that we can complete our sleep. This happens because we all are living our life in fast forward. So just for once stop and give yourself  a blank stare in the eye, look in the hollowness of your soul, you will find it buried in the storm of your feeling, with your dreams soaring over it like wind. We’re too busy trying to rush through everything, so we can get on with what we’re really supposed to do with our lives. Do we even remember what we were before the world told us what we should be?

We cannot control what happens but we can control what we do. So why don’t we stop surviving and start living. It doesn’t mean to give up on our duties and chill out but you can find some time to do those small things which give meaning to your life. It can be an act of kindness, a travel to someplace, writing down what’s on your mind, anything where happiness is what you find but don’t forget to slow down and live those moments because they will give you memories, memories which bring sheer happiness.

We have to stop capturing what doesn’t matter and blurring what does .We have to stop living a life we’ll regret later and live a life that we’ll be proud of cause when we’ll be on our death bed and we’ll look back we don’t want our dreams looking at us with large angry eyes but we should feel that our life was a life well lived.
